In Conspiracy Theory players test their knowledge of the world of conspiracies. Answer questions to collect conspiracy cards to win, but be careful of Government Cover-Ups, they can set you back.
The conspiracies range from well-known suspicions to some truly bizarre theories. To provide additional information on the theories in the game, a unique QR code is printed on every conspiracy card that connects to a page with information on that specific theory and links to websites devoted to explaining it.
The first player to collect one of each type, or 3 of the same type of conspiracy cards, wins the game.

Russian Roulette is a banking game in which all bets must be placed against the Tzar who is the house or banker. The object of the game is to be the player with the most money when the game ends.
All players bet on the card that will come up next. Players use their colored chips (each worth $1,000) to bet on the suit, the rank, and the exact face of the card predicted next. There is an unique way to get back into the game if you lose all your money.
The game ends when either a) the predetermined time limit expires, b) the bank runs out of money, or c) all players have been eliminated.
